The approach

Our Director Jade Leanne Taylor concepted this commerical using photos and personal interviews with course leaders whilst scouting the location to ensure an in-depth perspective of each course offering.  Producer Mel Jones then proceeded to plan, risk assess and schedule this four day shoot consisting of 24 locations and a cast of over 100. All stakeholders were able to monitor and interact with the workflow remotely.
